Recording of VCAT monetary order
A decision for the payment of money – called a monetary order – from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) can be recorded and enforced in the Magistrates’ Court of Victoria.
Where the amount to be paid is over $100,000, you can enforce the VCAT monetary order in either the County or Supreme Court of Victoria.
When a VCAT monetary order is recorded, all enforcement options to claim unpaid money are available.
STEP 1: Contact VCAT
Contact VCAT and ask for a copy of the monetary order to be recorded at the Magistrates' Court.
STEP 2: Await confirmation
The Magistrates’ Court will record the VCAT monetary order and send a copy to your home address or email address.
What happens next?
Once an order is recorded, an application for enforcement can be made.
